Calling all artisans and craftspeople

Reserve your space now, for the Harvest Festival in Ninigret Park

A Harvest Festival is being held at Ninigret park on September 22 from 10am to 5pm, followed by a square dance until 6:30. The festival is a fundraiser for the Charlestown Community Garden, which provides food to the senior center, the Johnnycake center, local food pantries, and Meals on Wheels. They run solely on the energy and time of volunteers, and need funding to continue their good work.

The organizers are anticipating a very big turnout for this event, and would like to invite you to fill out an application (available here) to be considered for attendance. The price is very reasonable, and fees will be returned if for any reason we cannot process the application (we do not want too many people selling the same item, we are sure that you don't, either!). Note that all participants must have an interactive demo/activity to share with the attendees.

Please consider joining us for a day of community, food, theatre performance, music and square dancing. All money from fees will go towards the garden. If you would like to volunteer or help in any other capacity do not hesitate to contact Katie McAllister at 965-4041or the other phone numbers or email on the application.
